Established by a Christian monk in the city of Piedmont Italy 300 years ago. Monks were very talented with distilling and working around food & drink.
Frangelico is said to be the recipe of Fra'Angelico, a monk living in the Piedmont hills. It is made from hazelnuts made from within the area, as it gets crushed & toasted before getting transferred into a alcohol solution. It is here when it gets distilled blended with cocoa & vanilla, sugar & water.
